How are your Vinyl Shutters made?
The parts for our Custom Vinyl Shutters are a combination of injection-molded and extruded.  The shutters are made with a multi-piece assembly, using electrostatically welding and stapling.  This process allows us to provide the most extensive selection of sizes, colors, and configurations.  Our Premier One-Piece Vinyl Shutters are 100% injection-molded.

Can I Custom Paint the custom exterior shutters?
We offer a paintable version of all our products, all you need to do is request color #049 – Paintable.  Our color-through products are not able to be painted.  There are products on the market that claim to be able to paint plastic shutters, but we have not done any testing to verify their claims.

I would like a custom color for my shutters, is that possible?
All Perfect Shutters Vinyl, Wood, and Composite Shutters can be custom painted.  We offer this process in-house for an additional fee.

Do the vinyl shutters have a wood grain finish?
Perfect Shutters Vinyl Products have a deep, true wood grain finish.

Can I use a different color for trim accessories than for the shutter panels?
This is a subjective question.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  We have many customers that have used a different color for the trim accessories than for the panels.  The nice part about our product is that our process allows for us to use as many or as little colors as you prefer.

What type of surfaces can shutters be installed on?
Our Exterior Shutters can be installed on almost any type of surface using either our shutter spikes (vinyl) or shutter screws (metal, painted-head).  See all of our Installation Instructions.

What is the depth of your shutters?
They will vary a bit, but on average all Vinyl Shutters are 7/8” in depth.   We do offer a Country Style Shutter that is nearly 2” in depth.  Most Wood shutters are 1” in depth.

Can I order individual shutters?
We only sell in pairs of shutters.

How thick is the material used on your vinyl exterior shutters?
The material will vary anywhere from .090 to .110 mils depending on the product and the structural requirement of the product.
